My reading habit hasn’t improved any lately and that really needs to change. I am, for now, blaming the crap-storm currently brewing over England, and we are due to get rained on over the course of the next few months. I won’t bring politics to what I want to stay strictly a book blog, but let’s just say we aren’t doing so well over here.
I’ve been using video games as a means of escapism as they require a great deal less thought than books. Depth of thought during a time of crisis is a double-edged sword, especially when we have very little control over the circumstances that put us on edge. This is particularly true for those of us with anxiety.
But, I am determined not to let anything stop me reading and have already taken the first step to re-booting my reading schedule: acquiring a corkboard. A list of my to-read books at constant eye-level is sure to help. Next step, figuring out what to read in what order. Well, here’s one that will eventually make its way onto the corkboard list:
“Lexi River has one job—keep Gareth Blaze, a high -stakes gambler, out of trouble. It’s an easy enough task for Lexi most of the time. That is until a mysterious woman named Genevieve bewitches Gareth into placing a bet he can’t win.
Now penniless, Gareth and Lexi are forced to move back to their home state of Kentucky. Once there, they learn Gareth is being stalked by a supernatural creature called a Siren and it won’t stop until Gareth is dead.
Can Lexi learn how to stop the Siren before it gets to Gareth?”

Sirens don’t pop up in urban fantasy enough in my opinion, they are super fun. They’ve got the same vibes as succubi and incubi but with a great deal more class. Maybe they’ll have their turn at a popularity wave – it seems more likely than a mermaid one, which I was secretly hoping for.
I’m going to pop this one on my to-read pile, get organised, and hopefully there’ll be a review up in no time.
